Located just over an hour from London and 15 minutes from Oxford, Bruern Abbey is the only preparatory school in the country to have as its main purpose the preparation of boys with learning difficulties for Common Entrance and other entrance examinations to mainstream independent senior schools.
Learning difficulties should not preclude academic success. The School’s raison d’être is to prepare boys, who have dyslexia or some other form of learning difficulty, for Common Entrance to major British public schools. We provide a tailored education in beautiful surroundings and maintain high expectations for the academic future. We aim to enhance boys’ self-esteem, in the firm belief that confidence is the key to academic success.
